The man recorded baseball’s first triple play, he invented the fastball (he called it the speedbal) and the changeup (he called it the dew drop). He pitched the first shutout. And he died from hitting a homerun too far by virtue of swinging too hard. Oh, and yes he also looked exactly like my brother, Scotty P.
